London Olympics Medal Count: U.S. And China Still Tied For Total Medals

The United States won big in swimming and gymnastics, but they're still trailing their economic world power rivals for the most. After Tuesday's events at the Olympic Games in London, the score atop the medal leader board remains tied between the United States and China at 23 medals each, with the Chinese boasting a 13-9 advantage in gold medals over the Americans. Rounding out the top five is Japan, with 13 total medals, France (11 total) and South Korea (nine).

There was a lot of gold for the U.S. on Tuesday - the women's gymnastics team won gold, as well as the men's swimming 4x200 relay team, as well as a gold for American Allison Schmitt in the women's 200m freestyle swimming event.
